Hello, my name is Kay. I was diagnosed last year with fibro after having a surgery. It has been very difficult to deal with and feel guilty, frustrated, sad, etc. that I feel bad so often. It is really depressing. I feel like my life has been ripped out from under my feet.

I used to be able to go and go! I work full time. I have three kids (2 are out of the house) and have been married for 30 years. I feel bad for my husband that I am always tired, or in pain, etc. It is hard for anyone to understand if they don't have it, so I thought it was time to reach out to others who share this crappy ailment. So hello!
